Overview and metadata sections

Prior to the 1870s, Philadelphia's public transportation system consisted of dozens of independently owned and operated horse-drawn streetcar lines. However, as Philadelphia's population grew, increasing street congestion and the disorganization of the numerous independent streetcar lines created a need for a more efficient transportation system. Efficiency could only be achieved through expensive mechanization, which required consolidated capital. The path to electrification and unification was begun in 1883 when three men, William Kemble, Peter Widener and William Elkins, formed the Philadelphia Traction Company to supply power to existing lines. At that point, there were three primary rival companies operating in Philadelphia: Philadelphia Traction Company, People's Traction Company and Electric Traction Company. They merged to form the Union Traction Company in 1895. Still, the problem of street congestion remained, and the solution seemed to lie in subway and elevated rail lines. To accomplish this, Union Traction Company was absorbed into a new organization, the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company (PRT) in 1902. Construction on the Market Street subway began in 1903, and by 1905 the western part of the subway was open for use.

Through a 1907 contract with the City of Philadelphia, the municipality gained control over the public transportation system and the company gave up leadership in the development of Philadelphia's rapid transit system. In addition, the burden of snow removal and other maintenance tasks formerly carried out by the rail companies, as well as the car licensing fees mandated in the 1850s by streetcar laws, were taken away. The city gained control of PRT through a number of measures. Namely, municipal representatives were given seats on the Board of Directors. The city also gained access to PRT financial records and the right to approve mergers or any other major changes to the company structure.

Despite the changes brought on by the 1907 charter, PRT still experienced financial troubles and could not finance the promised subway lines. Further pressure was placed on the PRT in the form of multiple strikes by transit workers demanding pay increases. The strike of 1910 turned into a violent city-wide riot, after which PRT underwent a drastic refinancing and reorganization. Thomas E. Mitten (1864-1929) took over management of PRT in 1911. He placated the workers by establishing a Co-Operative Welfare Association, expanded PRT's business, and brought the company back from the brink of financial ruin.

In 1913, the city established the Department of City Transit, which would oversee the development of rapid transit in Philadelphia. PRT could then rent or lease the infrastructure constructed and paid for by the city department. The relationship between PRT and the municipality was not without conflict, and disputes over finances continued well into the 1930s. Nevertheless, PRT and the Department of City Transit managed the public transportation system until 1940, when Philadelphia Transportation Company (PTC) was created. With the establishment of this company, the City of Philadelphia and public transportation became even more intertwined. The city received half the company's profits and the right to purchase all its property. Essentially, through the formation of this private company, the municipality gained even more control of Philadelphia's transit system. In 1968, PTC was purchased by the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA), a municipal authority still in control more than 40 years later.

The Dr. Harold E. Cox transportation collection is composed primarily of records from the Philadelphia Transportation Company (PTC), its predecessor the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company (PRT), and that company's subsidiary and predecessor rail lines. The collection dates from 1803 to 1967, with the bulk of materials ranging from 1858 to 1960. It consists of financial records, legal records, correspondence, administrative records, ephemera, scrapbooks, newspaper clippings, atlases, and route maps and diagrams.

A large proportion of the collection relates to the legal affairs of the PTC and PRT, focusing mainly on PTC's "rate cases." Whenever PTC wanted to raise its fares, it had to submit an application to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission; often appeals were brought to higher courts, where PTC had to show the increase was necessary for its financial stability. Another well-documented area of the collection is the business activities of PRT and PTC: there are financial records and accounting reports, as well as copies of agreements, leases, and contracts. One of the strongest areas in the collection is records from PRT's subsidiary and predecessor rail lines. Documentation varies by company, but generally includes some combination of financial records, accident reports, and meeting minutes. Noticeably absent from the Harold E. Cox transportation collection are Board of Directors minutes from either PRT or PTC, and the collection is light on correspondence files. Some materials in the collection, including atlases, published court records, newspaper clippings, and newsletters from the ephemera series may be available elsewhere.

This collection is arranged into ten series: "Meeting minutes, 1913-1945"; "Financial records, 1857-1967"; "Legal records, 1867-1965"; "Correspondence, 1895-1941"; "General administrative records, 1872-1967"; "Ephemera and other published materials, 1880-1967"; "Subsidiary and predecessor rail lines, 1803-1941"; "Scrapbooks and newspaper clippings, 1905-1942"; "Maps, diagrams, and ward atlases, 1869-1959"; and "Willow Grove Amusement Park records, 1896-1940." Unless otherwise indicated, and excluding the "Subsidiary and predecessor rail lines" and "Willow Grove Amusement Park records" series, all records dating after 1940 relate to the Philadelphia Transportation Company (PTC) and all records dating before 1940 relate to the Philadelphia Rapid Transit Company (PRT).

The first series, "Meeting minutes, 1913-1945," consists of minutes of PTC and PRT meetings. The series is arranged alphabetically by committee name. Only a few committees are represented in this series, and the records are incomplete; noticeably absent are minutes from Board of Directors or Executive Committee meetings.

The second series, "Financial records, 1857-1967," contains annual reports, audit reports, account records, property valuations and depreciation studies, and loan and trust records. The series is arranged alphabetically by folder title. It provides a fairly comprehensive accounting of PRT and PTC finances, especially when taken with the exhibits relating to financial affairs in the legal records series.

The third series, "Legal records, 1867-1965," consists of legal briefs, court orders, exhibits and evidence, questionnaires and answers, printed testimony, and hearing transcripts. The series is divided into twelve subseries. The first ten subseries house records for ten well-documented cases relating to rate increases. The subseries are presented in chronological order of the cases, but within each subseries files are arranged alphabetically by folder title. The eleventh subseries contains documentation about PRT's bankruptcy, and the subsequent merger of subsidiary rail lines that resulted in the formation of PTC. It is arranged alphabetically by folder title. The final subseries contains materials relating to several cases that are not extensively documented. The cases are arranged chronologically by date.

The fourth series, "Correspondence, 1895-1941," consists of company letterbooks of outgoing general correspondence, and correspondence from the engineering department in particular. Of special interest is a letterbook from the office of Peter Arrell Brown Widener, one of the trio who founded Philadelphia Traction Company. The correspondence is arranged alphabetically by subject. Researchers should note that letterbooks are filed within this alphabetical scheme under "L." The letter books contain chronologically arranged correspondence that pertains to multiple subjects. Additional correspondence files, dating from 1896 to 1912, are currently restricted due to conservation concerns; contact the Historical Society of Pennsylvania for more information.

The fifth series, "General administrative records, 1872-1967," houses a wide variety of records relating to the management, activities, and administration of PRT and PTC. Documentation is somewhat scattered and incomplete; researchers should review this series in conjunction with the financial records series. It contains accident registers, leases and agreements between PRT and subsidiary rail lines, vehicle specifications, Mitten Management training manuals, passenger statistics, property records, township ordinances and rights of way. Of special interest are "Historical data" files compiled by writers of PTC/PRT institutional histories, and a chart showing the subsidiaries of PRT and PRT's interests therein. This series is arranged alphabetically by subject and/or record type.

The sixth series, "Ephemera and other published materials, 1880-1967," contains bound publications (publications by PRT in chronological order, in volumes by year), issues of "Off-Peak," PTC's employee newsletter; "PRT/PTC Traveler," a free public guide to Philadelphia events and how to get there by PRT/PTC transit; "Service Talks," Mitten Management's newsletter; press releases; bus schedules; and ticket samples. This series is arranged alphabetically by record type or name, and then chronologically within those groups.

The seventh series, "Subsidiary and predecessor rail lines, 1803-1941," consists of materials relating to any company besides the PRT and PTC. Documentation for each of the individual rail lines varies significantly -- some are only documented by a single record, while others are represented with several records over many years. Researchers will find one or more of the following for each: accident registers, minute books, letterbooks, account ledgers, annual reports and stockholder listings. Almost 60 rail companies are represented, but documentation is particularly robust for 13th and 15th Streets Passenger Railway Company, People's Passenger Railway Company, Philadelphia Traction Company, Union Traction Company, and Wilkes-Barre Railway Company.

The eighth series, "Scrapbooks and newspaper clippings, 1905-1942," is divided into four subseries. The first subseries, "Edmund Stirling scrapbooks, 1917-1935," contains scrapbooks created by Public Ledger editor Edmund Stirling. The scrapbooks consist primarily of newspaper clippings about the PRT, and are accompanied by a card-file index to the scrapbooks. The second subseries is "Newspaper clipping scrapbooks, 1905-1912" and the third subseries is "Newspaper clippings, 1912-1936," compiler(s) unknown. The scrapbooks in the last subseries, "Miscellaneous scrapbooks, 1848-1942," include newspaper clippings, photographs, ticket stubs, and transportation ephemera related to PRT, PTC and public transportation generally.

The ninth series, "Maps, diagrams and ward atlases, 1869-1959," contains maps of Philadelphia and surrounding areas, transportation maps, and electrical diagrams of stations. The majority are bound volumes and rolled items.

The final series, "Willow Grove Amusement Park, 1896-1940," consists of materials relating to the PRT-owned and operated amusement park. Conceived as a way to generate business along the Willow Grove transit line, the park opened in 1896 and was in operation until 1975. It contains administrative, legal, and financial records relating to park operations, as well as photos of annual company picnics.

Gifts of Dr. Harold E. Cox, 1990, 2003 (transferred from the Atwater Kent Museum), 2004, and 2005.

Dr. Harold E. Cox is Professor of History Emeritus and University Archivist at Wilkes University, Pennsylvania. He is the former editor of Pennsylvania History and has written extensively on the history of urban transportation and the development of inner cities in the nineteenth century.

The processing of this collection was made possible through generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, administered through the Council on Library and Information Resources' "Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives" Project.

This collection was minimally processed in 2009-2011, as part of an experimental project conducted under the auspices of the Philadelphia Area Consortium of Special Collections Libraries to help eliminate processing backlog in Philadelphia repositories. A minimally processed collection is one processed at a less intensive rate than traditionally thought necessary to make a collection ready for use by researchers. When citing sources from this collection, researchers are advised to defer to folder titles provided in the finding aid rather than those provided on the physical folder.

Employing processing strategies outlined in Mark Greene's and Dennis Meissner's 2005 article, More Product, Less Process: Revamping Traditional Processing Approaches to Deal With Late 20th-Century Collections, the project team tested the limits of minimal processing on collections of all types and ages, in 23 Philadelphia area repositories. A primary goal of the project, the team processed at an average rate of 2-3 hours per linear foot of records, a fraction of the time ordinarily reserved for the arrangement and description of collections. Among other time saving strategies, the project team did not extensively review the content of the collections, replace acidic folders or complete any preservation work.
